't mr. romney, though, vote consistently... >> chris: he has on -- mr. romney, to allow those exceptions... >> but, he has voted -- mr. ryan's voting record -- >> mr. ryan... joe biden didn't agree, with a lot of barack obama's positions but you listen to the guy in the top job. >> look, look at his positions now. i guess that is news. >> chris: no, actually, it has been for some period of time. let's move on to libya and the continuing controversy on the attack in the consulate in benghazi that killed four people, four americans and we learned friday, cia operators on the ground repeatedly requested military backup, and were refused and that they also asked to be able to go from the annex where they worked, over to the consulate to help out there, and were refused. and, this week, the father of one of the navy s.e.a.l.s, the father of slain a former navy s.e.a.l., let's look at what he said. >> he violated his orders in order to protect the lives of at least 30 people and he risked his life to be a hero and i wish the leadership in the white house had the same moral courage that my son
and the back alleys outside the event where mr. romney today will give what his aides call the closing argument of his 2012 presidential campaign. iness spence he'll be arguing that a choice for obama amounts to stag nation and more of the status quo and a choice for romney amounts to bold change and prosperity. today mr. romney did comment on the new jobless numbers from the bureau of labor statistics, unemployed ticked up a 10th of a point. he said, the jobless rate was hire than it was when president obama took office and there are still 23 million americans struggling for work. on tuesday america will make a choice between stag nation and prosperity. romney goes onto say for four years president obama's policies have crushed america's middle class, for four years president obama has told us that things are getting better and we're making progress. for so many american families those words ring hollow. romney again will be arguing this it's really a choice between owe obama's status quo and bold proposal for prosperi prosperity. the obama campaign all romney has done is offered vague policie
to come. >> we hear that perhaps he's going to -- mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to flj to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics then you don't know me. >> this storm undoubtedly is a wale wake-up call to those conservatives who want to leave disaster relief up to the states. turn it over to them. to those who want to privatize everything. the state of new jersey right now is overwhelmed. they don't have enough resources. the state's roar sources just aren't to help those without power or flooded out of their home. you need a total effort across the country in a crisis like there that's why there is a federal government. federal and local governments working together is the successful formula for the state of new jersey. it's going to take time. but to say to turn
to jump-start the campaign after the lull that took place in the wake of sandy's devastation. mr. romney began the rhetoric and amping it up though he didn't mention president obama by name. he's making references to the disaster relief effort. you can see on the jumbo screen this started early yesterday morning. the red cross with a text to make donations. earlier today mr. romney started the campaign trail in tampa. he will have three events in florida today. on this first day back on the trail's a combination of messages. one, sympathy for those in the storm's path and two, anticipation in a get out the vote effort which he hopes will be a big victory. >> please make sure you go out and vote early. tough a dollar extra send it to the red cross for our friends in harm's way. i love, i appreciate it and together we'll win. thank you, guys. thank you. >> reporter: romney aides came back and visited us on the plane. a hotter half-hour flight. they believe mr. rom this on offense and expanding the battlefield to places like minnesota. obama spokesman david axlerod says he will shave his mu
are contorsoinists. >> governor romney is down by five points in ohio, according to the latest polls. for mr. romney, desperate times call for desperate measures and it doesn't matter how much the truth suffers. joining me now is pulitzer prize connie schultz. she writes today, why romly will lose ohio. hint, hint. and dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." he's writing that romney goes off road with the truth. thanks for being here tonight. connie, let me start with you. you were born and raised in ohio with ties to the auto industry. >> yes. >> how are ohioans responding to this false attack by romney and ryan? >> that's what is interesting to me. i come from these people. i come from utility workers and auto plant workers and steel workers. i think romney thinks that the people that i come from are stupid. but i've been traveling all over the state. i was in three different towns today and i've been at a lot of packed halls with auto workers and people who supply the auto industry. you're talking about 800,000 jobs in auto-related jobs in ohio, which means you're talking about more th
? to chris's point, why not have some secondary surrogates, whether it's paul ryan or mrs. romney or the romney boys go to those states and just buying it. i remember that very well. even though, chris, the obama campaign is dismissing the idea romney is seriously competing in these states, should they have sparener to shore up those voti ttleground map, and this has been one of the asmall, narrow . you have battleground polls show you don't want to bleed yourself so much, even with the amount of money both campaigns have, that you actually make it easier for the other side to make inroads. >> i'm out of time but i want to ask you each really, really quickly for your guy, on the democratic side, chris, where are we going to see the president going over the weekend, the last weekend of this campaign? >> that's obvious, ohio, ohio, ohio. >> ohio, ohio, ohio. how about you, robert? where is romney going? >> ohio and most likely he will end his campaign in new hampshire. new hampshire is still very much in play. and maybe hawaii. he might go to hawaii. i heard romney may go to hawaii.
. >> but hasn't mr. ryan, though, voted consistently. >> chris he has taken the position of mr. romney which is to allow those exceptions. if i may -- >> mr. ryan's voting record is one -- >> chris: joe biden didn't agree with a lot of barack obama's positions but you listen to the guy in the top job. >> but mr. ryan has flipped his positions now. i guess that is news. >> chris: no, actually had it for some period of time. let's move on to libya if we can and the continuing controversy over the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed four americans. we learned friday that cia operators on the ground repeatedly requested military backup and were refused and that they also asked to be able to go from the annex where they were over to the consulate to h help out there and were refused. and this week the father of one of the navy seals charlie woods who is the father of slain former navy seal tyrone woods spoke out on it. let's take a look at what he had to say. >> my son violated his orders in order to protect the lives of at least 30 people. he risked his life to be here. i wish t
is the wall street journal on that story. even as mr. romney and mr. obama canceled a political appearances tuesday, the two campaigns -- escalated a heated exchange over mitt romney suggestion that the president also bailout had benefited china. he returned to pennsylvania in hopes of returning the momentum. the story wall street journal goes on to talk about that many have come out including those in the auto industry to say that the governor was wrong on this ad, that he is running in the state of ohio. we will talk about that more in about 10 minutes when reid wilson of the hot line joins us to talk about october surprises and all things campaign 2012. democratic caller, go ahead. caller: i think one of the things people are not realizing , and people who think the global warming who does not exist -- here's an issue. there was a geologist on cnn in explained that a cold front came in from the northwest, right through chicago. one day last week we were sitting at 80 degrees. the next we were sitting at 40 degrees. we went from 80 to 40. that cold front was directly down to the gulf of m
to mr. romney. well, a gm spokesman responded to this saying, that is absolutely bereft of any fundamental understanding of the global automotive industry. all global manufacturers, whether general motors, ford, chrysler, or vw, build historically in the markets in which we sell. steve rattner, last, just to nail this down, it seems to me, the reality is, beyond all the nonsense and the ads put out by romney to get votes, is that we build jeeps in this country for people to buy them in this country, as i have done, and we build jeeps in china for chinese people to buy, and that's the way it's been, it's the way it will be, according to all future plans. >> yes. and i think both you and bill and what you have just read from the gm spokesman has made that very clear. cars are being made close to people who buy them. now, we do export jeeps at the moment, because it is such an iconic brand worldwide. and jeep wranglers will only be made in toledo for the foreseeable future. and any jeep wranglers that are bought around the world, and as i said, it is an iconic brand, will be expor
of that. should mr. romney went, it says if mitt romney wins next week, enough democrats would probably be left to block his promise to roll back wall street rules enacted in response to the financial crisis. romney would be expected to appoint new leaders of the treasury department, securities and exchange commission and other agencies that would take a less aggressive approach. instead of timothy geithner romney is expected to fill the position with a less activist nominee. in addition, a romney administration could leave some posts under weekend acting heads. florida calling in, tom on our line for independents. caller: i am voting for romney mack. i would like to see romney in the senate. i do believe he is out there with his friends having a good time. and you show me your friends are. host: a toss up when it comes to seats in the senate. 11 seats. arizona, connecticut, indiana, massachusetts, montana, virginia, wisconsin. massachusetts, this is -- on our line for democrats. caller: thank you for c-span. i am a democrat, and voting for obama. i am voting for elizabeth warren. i do
another visit to ohio from mr. romney. he and aurora will bot and pau' appear together. the latest poll says it is now an actual tie. 49% to 49%. a remarkable crescendo. and with all of that, today on the sunday shows, the surrogates were battling it out on behalf of their candidates. watch. >> i also feel like the momentum is on our side. i have been at six of the rallies over the last week and at about a dozen victory centers around the state and the energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year. it is interesting to watch. we were down probably five to ten points before the debates. after the debates we are about dead even and moving our weigh. >> i do think that governor romney gained a little after the first debate. i think it leveled off and this race is exactly where you and i have been -- i said this to you many times over the course of the last year it is a close race but as you look at the battleground states we are even or ahead in virtually all of them in these critical states like, ohio. >> since the republican convention, paul ryan and mitt romney combined have been here
to eliminate it. at a republican primary debate last year, mr. romney was asked whether emergency management was a function that should be returned to the states. he not only agreed, he went further. mr. romney not only believes that states acting independently can handle the response to a vast east coast storm better than washington, but that companies can do an even better job. he said it was immoral for the federal government to do all these things if it means increasing the debt. many don't like the idea of free aid for poor people or think people should pay for their bad decisions, which this week includes living on the east coast. >> what do you want me to say? >> nothing. i really don't want you to say anything. >> no, i want to say something. >> okay. go ahead and say something. >> that's absolutely ridiculous. >> okay. >> i think what mitt romney is absolutely ridiculous. >> oh. okay. >> this is what happens, though, when you're afraid to go after medicare, medicaid and social security and defense spending and reform taxes to bring more revenue to the federal government, you have to
's insane. i think mr. mitt romney ought to be pushing back. >> as a quick extension, his idea instead of doing that with the economy back on its heels, raise taxes, which he will do if he gets reelected and impose more regulation on the economy. that's his solution to the problem we had before. >> i think the contrast in these closing arguments are very telling. obama decides to double down on the character assassination and class warfare, romney is talking bipartisanship, and he was a governor of a blue state. one sounds more presidential than the other. >> paul: the president is throwing out attempts to say, well, i'm going to get a big budget deal with congress, i real want bipartisan immigration deal, hey, maybe, even tax reform. >> this is really important, yeah, because he's being very critical of romney and last weeks we're seeing the glimmer of hope and change obama and trying to get that back and the testament with independent voters and women and they voted for him in 2008 because, again, he claimed to be a new type of politician. i don't think this was working. it's falling
romnesia. >> mr. romney tries to have voters believe that he's a car guy, proud son of george romney, held of american motors. but there is that op-ed that will haunt him for the next nine days. and the title says it all. let detroit go bankrupt. romney might have been voicing his opposition to bailing out the auto companies and instead managed -- wanted to go with managed bankruptcy, but it translated if he want detroit to go away and die. and while the auto industry is making a slow and somewhat staggered comeback, it walk as fine line between bankruptcy and solvency. president obama's plan did not give up on the american car or american car manufacturing. and that may translate in the president's favor beyond michigan into key battleground states like ohio where recent polls show him doing better among white male voters than in other parts of the country. so ari, to me this notion of romney trying to sell himself as an automat bot when he's clear deceptive, he can keep saying i love cars when we have that let detroit go bankrupt headline. >> this goes to the entire mindset of their worl
resource, the candidate's time in a serious way to win pennsylvania. mr. romney's appearance here on sunday could be a crafty political move to seriously undercut president obama, or could be a sign of desperation. either way is visit represents the biggest jolt yet in a state that has been recently largely ignored. in recent days, polls showing -obama's narrowing said. again, this morning we are talking about the non- battleground states. we will go to california, on our line for republicans, helen, you are on. caller: good morning. i am a first-time caller. please do not cut me off. host: go ahead. caller: i will be so glad when this election is over. i was raised a republican. my whole entire life, never voted anything but republican. but i tell you what, anyone -- i switched this year, i was born to go independent, but i am going to go for barack obama. anyone that will vote for mitt romney has to be a 100% raist, or have a severe -- a 100% racist or have a severe mental problem. host: are you glad you are not subject to all of the presidential ads and mailings coming and to folks in oh

. >> final word, mr. la camp. >> well, i agree. if the republicans win, if mitt romney wins, there's going to be some optimism, enthusiasm, maybe a quicker fix to the fiscal cliff, and we have a rally that could last through january. but then we've got longer term problems that he can't fix overnight, and then the market is going to run into some new headwinds. >> thank you to the two jims. >>> coming up, this storm could have a huge impact on the presidential election. you might be surprised at which candidate this storm is hurting more. please stay with us. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> the massive recovery efforts are under way, but one lingering impact from sandy could be on politicians. eamonn is in washington with the latest. >> it wa
. >> latino are 15% of registered voters in key battleground state as florida where romney was today. colorado, and nevada. they questioned mr. obama for non-fulfilling his promise to pass immigration reform in the first year. the top concerns of hispanics are even tougher for the president. >> the number one issue today for latinos, especially latino voters is the economy. impact the great recession has had on latinos has been tremendous. >> recent fox news poll confirms that, showing 48% of hispanics chose economy as the most important issue. while only 23% said immigration. no wonder that romney emphasized economy in september interview with univision. >> there are 2 million more hispanics in post officeerty today than when the president took office. we have had 56 straight months with unemployment above 10% for hispanic-americans. unacceptable. >> bush got 44% of the hispanic vote in 2004. polls show romney getting a little more than half that. bret? >> bret: jim, thanks. still ahead -- look at some of the big-time gaffes made by the vice president in recent days that have gone under the r
with the scrubbing power of mr. clean magic eraser. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." mitt romney's storm relief event in dayton, ohio, was more than it seemed. turns out the romney campaign, they bought $5,000 worth of supplies the night before, to make sure that, you know, this whole thing just kind of came off okay and looked good. well, the idea was to collect goods for the red cross. very noble. even though the red cross would always prefer cash donations for logistical reasons. the campaign was worried that there might not be enough donations since the event was changed at the last minute. so the night before the event, according to buzzfeed, campaign aides went to a local walmart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned foods, diapers, and put on display, while they waited for donations to come in. according to one staffer, the campaign confirmed to buzz feed, it did donate supplies to the relief effort, but would not specify just how much it spent. buzz feed also reported the that empty-handed supporters were told to grab something going in. this should really come as no surprise. mitt r
crisis. and mr. obama heads to the all important state of ohio later today. and for his part, mitt romney was in virginia at several campaign stops. he criticized the president for not doing enough to help businesses. also romney said the nation needs a president who understands business better. romney's aides are conceding that the storm's slowed some of his momentum, but they insist their internal polls show him ahead in some of those toss-up states. romney visits wisconsin and also ohio today. >>> and from the lighter side of politics, vice president biden went on david letterman's show last night to read his top ten list. >> ah, joe. the subject, the top ten reasons to vote early. here's some of the highlights. >> if you vote early, you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry. i'm being told that's not accurate. >> that's not accurate. number two. >> early voters receive a $5 million donation from donald trump. >> wow! and the number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen -- >> honestly, don't you want this election over with already? >> yes, we do! >> i think we all do, j
in the democratic column. >> all right. >> bill: jamal? >> as -- mr. mayor, you mentioned some ads. but most people believe those ads are targeted at wisconsin, right? >> yeah st. paul and duluth is right on the border. and, you know, i think what the romney campaign has tried to do is fake the fact that they have grassroots support. it's kind of like faking like you are for the middle class, which we have seen them do so they have tried to make it look like they have support all over the place, but the reality is -- i have to tell you one very quick story. i was in sue city, iowa there was a little old lady making calls, and she had been there for six months. i was there six weeks period and she was still -- well she had moved across the room. so that's the kind of commitment we're talking about. >> bill: the romney campaign they are trying to paint him as a moderate who will work with democrats, sort of a middle of the road guy, whereas the reality is on most of the issues, he is about as extreme as you can get without being a tea partier, and maybe he is a tea partier.
, independent caller. hello.: i have one thing to say. our country is divided since mr. obama has been there. to me it seems is as divided to this country to such a point that people are at each throats. someone to pull us together. i think mitt romney will do a little bit better together and pulling people together because he has done it in his own state. we would hope that after this is all said and done a new efforts to not spending money we do not have. i cannot do it. you cannot do it. i do not think there is a list around there that can. we have to get people up there realize that it is not their money. it is our money. host: let's look at some comments that have come in on facebook. he set at only voting for democrats because the gop has lost touch with objective reality. they rant about the national debt and less tax cuts are involved then the national debt and deficits think no difference whatsoever. a delight to read the rest or any of the other comments are faced the pages c-span. beatrice joins us from maryland. hello. caller: i was just listening to the statements of some of the
